The reason I am pointing it out is because it is inspired by the actual story of the last roll of Kodachrome to be shot. It was done (and documented) by Steve McCurry, of National Geographic fame, and a film crew from Kodak. That piece of film is available for viewing somewhere. I think I had watched it on YouTube some years back. If you're not aware, Kodak discontinued Kodachrome back in 2009 and Steve shot his 'last roll' in 2010.
A couple of points about the movie I thought were done well was when Ben and his son Jason drop off the rolls at the lab. Soon after Ben, being recognized by other photographers who made the same pilgrimage, start chatting. At one point someone in the crowd says, "anyone seen Steve McCurry? I figured he'd be here." A funny nod to the real story.
The second came at the end credits where they showed Steve's actual images from his last roll of film. Sure, it was implied that they were Ben's, but I thought it was great that they actually used the real images from that last roll.
It's streaming now on Netflix so if you have it, watch it. It's a good movie. I gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
